Bridlington golfer Alex Belt’s fine start to the 2017 season continued as he carded an unofficial course record at the Calanova Golf Club in Spain.

He returned an eight-under-par 64 in the second round of the penultimate two-day event on this year’s Gecko Tour.

Despite the remarkable effort, Belt had to settle for a tie for third place and was left to regret a 75 on day one.

Because preferred lies were in operation, Belt’s achievement won’t get into the record books.
